But puffer fish don't just rely on their inflatable belly as a way of dissuading predators, they're also packed with the deadly neurotoxin tetrodotoxin. Of course, they're renowned as a delicacy just for this reason. Apparently, when prepared correctly, the minute traces of the toxin give you tingly lips and light-headedness.
